Mesa Falls Scenic Byway

Idaho Highway 47
Ashton, ID 83420

A small rainbow created by sunlight passing through the mist accents the falls from approximately 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. during the day. Mesa Falls Recreation area has lots of things to do. You can simply enjoy the power and beauty of the falls and watch the osprey and eagles that frequent the area. The walkways make viewing safe for all. Please--to ensure your own and your family's safety--stay on the walkways at all times.
